Purpose Statement

WE BUILD ON FOUNDATIONS WE DID NOT LAY

                                                                                 By Rev. Peter Spilman Raible


We build on foundations we did not lay.

We warm ourselves by fires we did not light.

We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant.

We drink from wells we did not dig.

We profit from persons we did not know.

We are ever bound in community.

May it always be so.


This is as it should be.

Together we are more than any one person could be.

Together we can build across the generations.

Together we can renew our hope and faith in the life that is yet to unfold.

Together we can heed the call to a ministry of care and justice.

 

We are ever bound in community.

May it always be so.
